An Open Letter to Leaders of the Western Hemisphere.

CANCEL THE MIAMI FTAA-ALCA NOW by Los Jaguares de Cancun Libre

ANNOUNCE THE CARNIVAL AND CANCEL THE FARCE: We Need To Have A Real
Meeting to Mobilize Civil and Uncivil Society
DEAR LATIN AMERICAN NATIONS AND THOSE OF THE CARIBBEAN:
CANCEL THE MIAMI FTAA, END THE FARCE, AND ISOLATE THE US IN ITS OWN SHIT!

Cancun was a great victory for all those opposed to the Fourth World War
(4WW), a war waged relentlessly across the globe by a few million lovers
of greed in the US-EU Empire, a war waged against the rest of the worlds
billions and its ENDANGERED natural world.

On September 12, 2003, a group of internationalists dropped a huge
banner from atop a 300 foot high construction crane above the WTO
convention centre in Cancun. We said Que Se Vayan Todos - They Should
All Go. A few days later the Kenyan delegation had had enough of the
US-EU arrogance and with the support of most of the poor countries of
the world and most NGOs they walked out of the WTO, ending this farcical
meeting.

As we said at the time of our banner drop: WE just know that the WTO is
not concerned with world trade, but with world slavery. The same goes
for the ALCA - FTAA free trade zone of the Americas. We have risked our
lives in solidarity with those whose lives are at risk and we will
continue to do so, in Mexico City, in Miami and in Europe.

Another Future is Necessary!

Let us take the Cancun victory forward and win the battle to end the 4WW
before the hegemonic policies of the US-EU Empire kill more millions
everywhere. Again we call for the WTO, FTAA-ALCA and NAFTA to be
disbanded and replaced with an open forum to address the many problems
faced everyday by most people: The Problems Inherent to Capitalism and
Social Exclusion. Until then the struggle continues.

Hold high the symbols of the Corn Plant and the Red Fist. The Corn
symbolizes the importance of farmers, the need for assured water
supplies and to ban Genetically Modified Frankenstein Foods (GMOs) to
protect our future food security.

The Red Fist symbolizes demands for dignity for all indigenous people
and the workers, all of whom have their culture and livelihoods
threatened with colonization by global corporations.

Instead of a Corporate, Colonial, Imperialist Surrender Treaty (ALCA) or
farcical debates in Miami - The World Needs a real meeting of equals in
Caracas or Buenos Aires or Port au Prince to agree on how to move
forward with new priorities of regional integration, the economics of
the local, and education for a solidarity economy. How to survive the
imminent backlash of the US-EU Empire should also be on any agenda.

To Miami We Must Take Our Message and Break Through the Corporate Media
Shields

We are planning new occupations and daring aerial actions before and
during the Miami FTAA conference. We join the screams of millions who
identify with the Korean farmer activist who died in Cancun to protest
the WTO and its genocidal agriculture policies. Our lives will be
hanging on the line - literally on a long rope - and we ask for your
support and your presence so that we can make these actions as big and
as safe as possible.

Either way, here we go!

We cannot sit at home while the rich wage economic war on the majority
of the people on earth –

ANNOUNCEMENTS: CARNIVAL NEWS SERVICE carnivalcore@yahoo.com:

MEXICO Y Internationalistas

A key learning and growing experience in Cancun, Mexico at the WTO-OMC
Meet was the vulnerability to Mexican students and activists from
massive police oppression. We call for the formation of two new
organizations to offer solidarity and sacrifice with Mexican activists:

1. An Emergency Response Network to respond quickly to any crisis,
attacks or needs of Mexican activists. This would include travelling
quickly to hot spots in Mexico and rapidly organizing a major response
within the US and other countries.

2. A Mexican Mobilization Pledge: to mobilize large numbers of US and
other citizens to travel to Mexico to offer support and protection to
activists there for planned large demonstrations.

Please contact Ecosolidarity@yahoo.com to participate or fund these groups.

QUE SE VAYAN* will put some savvy desperados hundreds of feet high near
the Miami FTAA Convention Center ( maybe thousands of feet, si tu
quieres ) with giant banners to do cell phone interviews for days before
and during the hemispheric Fat Cats (pinche Gatos-Gorditos) meeting. The
joke is on the millionaires and corporate criminals when we tell them
what the world thinks about their trade-economics-for-the rich. Help us
think up good banner titles (SHORT!) Sponsor a Banner - they cost around
2000 to do right. These are big, like 20 or 30 by 30 or 40 feet!

ANNOUNCING

A FANTASTIC NEW MOVIE OF

GLOBALIZED RESISTANCE : THE FOURTH WORLD WAR - 4WW

“Whenever the system encounters obstacles to their process, whenever the
people resist, it responds with a war that pulverizes, liquefies,
terrorizes. A war without a battlefield, a war without identifiable
sides. A war that is everywhere, a 1000 civil wars, a war without end,
the 4th World War. … |On one side is a system of terrifying violence and
on the other side are all of us… all of us who will stop this war.” La
Quatro Guerra http://www.bignoisefilms.com/

“The Fourth World War is a total war, economic, social, political,
cultural and military. Everywhere today, every aspect of our lives is
being violently reorganized. Everywhere the system is at work dissolving
us, our labor, our land, our culture into flows of capital.”

4WW –Four WARS ONE World: A FILM:

La Quatre GUERRA

From the front-lines of conflicts in Mexico, Argentina, South Africa,
Palestine, Korea, 'the North' from Seattle to Genova, and the 'War on
Terror' in New York, Afghanistan, and Iraq. It is the story of men and
women around the world who resist being annihilated in this war.

While our airwaves are crowded with talk of a new world war, narrated by
generals and filmed from the noses of bombs, the human story of this
global conflict remains untold.

"The Fourth World War" brings together the images and voices of the war
on the ground. It is a story of a war without end and of those who resist.

The product of over two years of filming on the inside of movements on
five continents, "The Fourth World War" is a film that would have been
unimaginable at any other moment in history. Directed by the makers of
"This Is What Democracy Looks Like" and "Zapatista", produced through a
global network of independent media and activist groups, it is a truly
global film from our global movement.

The Fourth World War will be launched this Fall and begin touring
worldwide. Check our calendar for updates and screening times. Contact
us at: 4ww (at) bignoisetactical.org to help organize screenings.

Featuring; Music from Manu Chao, Moosaka, Cypher AD, DJ C

*[In responce to Ed. probe:
.... well, we are fighting the world government of the WTO and now the hemisperic
govenrnance of the FTAA which gives power to the powerful and removes some
remaining democratic choices people have. we function as an anarchist group
without hierarchy when possible other than in skill areas. we fight for the
awakening carnaval that is the movement against the authoritarianism and
militarism of BUSH II.
Our action group is called Que Se Vayan Todos which the rallying cry of the
anti-authoritarians in Argentina.....]
